Catalogue Description:
This course introduces the concept of measurements, errors, uncertainties and accuracy in
measurement. The basic components in electrical engineering are explained. The
characteristics and operation of measuring devices for voltage, current, electrical power
and temperature measurement are also discussed.

Course Learning Outcomes:
By the completion of the course the student should be able to:
1. Choose proper Electrical Engineering components for specific applications.
2. Explain the sources of measurement errors, characteristics of measuring instruments
that yields the error and need for calibration.
3. Apply statistical analysis tools (mean, median, histogram, variance ..etc) to describe
collected data.
4. Apply error propagation in calculations of error, accuracy and uncertainties for data
with uncertainties.
5. Determine the specification of the measuring device based on the properties of the
quantity to be measured.
6. Explain how small circuit components collectively combined to perform larger task.
